2) acquired a level of professional awareness, decisional and operative autonomy safety with a deep sensitivity to the complex human problems and social diseases;
3) acquired the theoretical knowledge arising from basic sciences and the ability to properly apply it in the perspective of subsequent professional application;
4) acquired the knowledge of physiopathology and organ and apparatus pathologies, interpreting them in the light of basic scientific knowledge from a clinical point of view;
5) acquired the competence to properly obtain and examine data and elements related to the state of health and illness of an individual;
6) acquired the ability and the experience of facing, and solving, the priority health problems considering the preventive, diagnostic, prognostic, therapeutic and rehabilitative aspects;
7) been exposed to the content and methods of scientific research as a tool to access the clinical field, always in the context of a training translational "from bench-to-bedside" and vice versa;
8) acquired the knowledge of historic, epistemological and ethical dimension of medicine;
9) acquired how to communicate properly and clearly with the patient and his/her relatives relating to them with humanity;
10) learnt how to co-operate with the different professional figures in the various health activities they will be exposed to;
11) learnt how to apply the principles of health economics in medical decisions and acquired the ability to recognise health problems in the community and intervene in a competent manner.
The professional profile of our graduates is characterized by a sound scientific knowledge of diseases and diagnostic procedures, by a strong ethical structure, accountability, consciousness of his/her own limitations, understanding of culture diversity, capability to solve urgent health problems, and respect for each individual, regardless of his/her religion, values, race, sex or any other peculiarities. They are supposed to mature a strongly integrated approach to the patient, critically assessing the clinical as much as the relational aspects. During the course they acquire the educational, social and ethical aspects involved in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of illness, as well as the rehabilitation and recovery of the highest possible level of psychophysical well-being. Our graduates are exposed to the content and methods of scientific research in the context of a translational training aimed at leading them in their lifelong learning and/or in their profession of biomedical scientists.
Graduates in the Medicine and Surgery degree courses acquire the professional profile adequate to carry out medical-surgical work in the different professional clinical, health and bio-medical roles and spheres.
The degree in Medicine and Surgery gives access to the State Examination for authorisation to practise as a M.D. Once the examination has been passed, access is given to registration in the relative professional order. In addition, the degree in Medicine and Surgery is a requirement for entry to the Postgraduate Medical Schools or the postgraduate courses for general practitioner.
